We know you can have that reaction– the warrior face when you are challenged or up to a challenge. But we believe that you can do things according to your will, determination and belief that you can accomplish things. That would be a positive way to start the year 2017.
Starting the year right with fitness is one of the positive things you can do. Yes, it is also about the positivity baby, gals and guys. The hashtag #positivevibes has been going around in the social media sphere for years and we want to ride that with a good year for the cannabis fans, enthusiasts and lovers.
Okay, going back to fitness… it would be the right time to do that on the first week of this year, if not today. Think of all the fats and calories that you have to shed after hovering all the goodies and fattening specialties from your wife, mother or husband. These calories need to burn. It’s going to be a challenge. But did you know that you can burn those calories with the help of cannabis?
For those of you who already have that idea that fitness and cannabis can be combined, then good for you. Thing is, for most of us, we believe that cannabis can help us relaxed. And that we have to sleep the high if it’s too much to handle.
But what we haven’t quite known yet is that there are cannabis strains that can get that adrenaline pumping.
Blueberry Dream is one of the strains from Leafs by Snoop that you can use to bring the energy. Don’t confuse it with Blue Dream though, the more popular one. However, it has been informed that these strains have similarities in characteristics. They have the same sweet blueberry flavor. But the Blueberry Dream can make you energetic and relaxed or whatever your reaction would be after consuming its THC content, which is reportedly at 14%.
Other strains that could get you active are Harlequin, Sweet Kush and the famous Jack Herrer.

A surprising discovery about cannabis is that it she regards it as a bronchodilator.
A puff before your workout will allow those bronchial tubes to take in more oxygen as well as enhancing blood flow (due to vasodilation). Both the increased air intake and increased blood vessel diameter deliver increased oxygen, which can be quite beneficial when exercising.
The recovery time after work out is one of the advantages of taking cannabis in fitness. That is something I have to note because that brings me the drive to go into fitness while mixing it with cannabis prior to doing any exercise.
Aside from that, cannabis’ way to alleviate pain is a good relief during workout where it is inevitable to experience certain discomfort or pain during and after the workout.
